The combined capacity of the storage systems is 2,329 MW and the maximum storage capacity is 3,946 MWh. This corresponds to 1588 MW/2848 MWh of distributed storage capacity at the end of December and only 189.5 MW/295.6 MWh at the end of 2020.
New capacity in the first quarter of this year was 741 MW/1,098 MWh, divided into 80,199 new storage systems. New capacity for 2022 was 1,121 MW/2,032 MWh, which was the strongest ever year of storage deployment in the country.
According to the new figures, about 99% of the batteries are connected to the solar power system. Most of the storage systems have been commissioned in the Lombardy region, with a combined capacity of 448 MW/753 MWh.
